Just how competitive is it to get into Stony Brook University's ANP program?

    They say it's highly competitive, but I haven't found any statistics on the application rate versus the acceptance rate. Mainly just curious, does anyone know?

    I am currently in the ANP program and it is very competitive. When I was accepted in 2011 I was initially put on the waiting list and I thought I had a strong application ( RN 6 years, just finished BSN, have done research and presentations, had ACLS, 3 strong recommendations)and yet i was waitlisted. For the 2012 application 2 of my colleagues at work applied to the program and neither was accepted. They both had different qualifications. So I'm not sure what Stonybrook is looking for in the applicants they accept.

    Hi, Are you in the ANP online program? If so how do you find it. For example taking Adult Care 1 online. do you feel like you are learning without being in a classroom setting? Started in 2012 and taking Adult Care 1 this September. Im in the online program. Thanks.

    Yes I'm in the ANP program. I started in 2011, so I will be starting adult 3 in the Fall. I think I learned more last semester with the intro of taped lectures and more support and communication from the faculty. However, most of what you learn when you start clinicals is what you will learn with your preceptor. The faculty and the class lectures and onsite days will reinforce what you learn with your preceptor.

    You could call schools you are interested in and ask, they may share that with you.

    I do some work for a local FNP program in a major academic area and they accept about 10 traditional pathway students per year and receive several hundred applicants every year.
